Dear Poul,

On a related note, O'Reilly has a new book out on developing  
instrument control software
using Python:

Real World Instrumentation with Python: Automated Data Acquisition and  
Control Systems by
John M. Hughes

(Self-interest disclosure: John's book mentions Prologix GPIB-USB Controller.)
